“NBC and CBS’ WFAN radio are looking at NBC News White House correspondent David Gregory as their next Don Imus,” Variety reports. “Sources said NBC is considering Gregory as a permanent replacement for Imus on MSNBC and that the network is in talks with WFAN on a deal to simulcast the show.”
Important graf: “If the deal happens, it would essentially flip around the former arrangement, where MSNBC licensed Imus in the Morning from WFAN, which produced it. Imus’ show was syndicated through CBS Radio and Westwood One. Under a new deal, MSNBC would own the show and have creative control, and WFAN would be the licensee.”
